Iran

Countries: 

Freedom House supports Iran's pro-democracy movement and human rights defenders as they resist the Iranian regime's surveillance and repression. Freedom House has published leading voices of dissent from inside Iran, activists who courageously defy the regime by writing under their own names and serve as key channels of information for activists inside Iran. We also advocate for policies to defend human rights by creating coalitions with other interested groups to push for increased global attention to human rights in Iran and to support political refugees. Our analysis of the Islamic regime's abuses of power and our outspoken support for human rights defenders in Iran have earned us a place near the top of the regime's list of "enemy organizations."
